Came across this old tweet from a few months back today…
And then I played the song.
Turns out, 4 months later… it’s still true.
Featuring background vocals from Belle Plaine, “Caroline” was released on Colter’s debut Imaginary Appalachia EP in 2015. The song tells the heartbreaking story of an old man whose lover has passed on to the other side. It’s a tale of longing and pain, but also of hope… the hope that he’ll see her again when his time comes.
The songs makes you miss the hell out of Caroline and you don’t even know who she is… that’s what country music is supposed to do.
